QS is an extension that corrects a number of issues with the current implementation of data structures in GameMaker:

  • Makes ds-related error messages more descriptive
    (e.g. if you are accessing a data structure that's already destroyed, you are told where it was destroyed from)
  • Shows errors/warnings in situations where GM fails silently or does undesirable actions
    (e.g. when mixing up data structure types)
  • Offers tools for figuring out memory leaks easier
    (you can view a list of currently active data structures per type and their origin of creation)
  • Offers tools for figuring out issues with JSON easier
    (e.g. circular references or forgetting to mark something for JSON)
  • Offers chained accessor functions
  • Can seamlessly revert to using built-in functions for zero overhead.
    (if you value both your sanity and performance)

All in all, it is designed as a definitive improvement as far as data structures go.
